This lotion was originally developed for someone truly lovely who shared information about the very uncomfortable side-effects of chemotherapy treatments. She looked into some of the lotions recommended by doctors to soothe her skin, but was unhappy to see the number of petrochemicals, drying alcohols, and artificial preservatives they contained. I was prompted to do further research into the topic and learned that squalene was a particularly popular ingredient for rapidly restoring moisture to skin. However, I was bothered to see most commercial sources were animal-based (shark liver) despite it being readily available in plant forms, including argan and olive oil. And so, these oils combined with the added benefits of calendula, are featured in this extra rich moisturizing lotion, which is ultimately helpful for anyone experiencing extreme dryness, whether health and/or climate related. I have also discovered it is very helpful for repairing/restoring nails damaged after professional manicures.
Please note: No essential oils are added to this product for the sake of scent, so please be aware that this product smells like the ingredients from which it is made: olive oil, calendula oil, and argan oil. If you are not sure if this product is right for you, please purchase a 1 oz sample sized bottle to try it before committing to a larger bottle. And yes, you may add a few drops of an essential oil such as lavender or chamomile to customize the scent of this product if you wish, but please be aware that some essential oils may change to the capacity for this product to deliver as much moisture as it does (i.e. astringent oils are not recommended).
This product is handcrafted without the use of artificial preservatives. Please store in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight for maximum longevity.

Please note: hand and body lotion is not available in 235 ml/8 oz glass bottles during the winter months because the water in this product can freeze, expand, and force enough pressure onto the glass that it shatters during transit. All cliches aside, Winnipeg *does* have a cold climate for a large part of the year, and that means this format is unavailable between mid-October to mid-April at my discretion. Thanks!
Please note: HDPE plastic bottles may be discontinued at any time.
Please note: Aluminum is thin and runs the risk of being dented either when shipped from the distributor to me, in the lab during production, or during shipping as a finished product. A dent in aluminum packaging is - at most - an aesthetic inconvenience in that it does not affect the quality or function of the product inside. The same is true for a beverage container - a dent that has not contributed to a leak does not impact the the product, which can still be consumed and enjoyed. Dents are therefore not considered product defects. For more information about this please visit: https://www.instagram.com/p/B37nH80AbqE/
